    @Miguel
    As long as you keep lying about cars, numbers and my country, i will keep calling you a liar. And if i’m being rude to anyone, i’m being rude to you. You’re the one with a hystory of disrespecting peoples comments and creating figures as it pleases you, without ever providing facts to back your ” opinions ” up. So, as usual Miguel, get your facts straight, dion’t lie, or STFU.

    Miguel :Prices I gave are all correct. I mentoned the version that are not the top of the range.

    Stop lying. There is a list of prices in the link i provided. Is the Mercedes E350 CDI the cheapest E klass available in Portugal?

  9. February 28th, 2012 at 00:12 | #9

    Prices I gave are all correct. I mentoned the version that are not the top of the range. Car prices in Portugal are quite expensive and have abusive prices. Even second hand car prices are ridiculous!

    TheK :

    tuga :

    So everything else get’s imported from Germany (Avensis starting as 23k here) or Sweden and is found in their numbers?

    Not quite sure of what you mean, but i think the problem with their pricing is simply taxation.

    The Mercedes E-klass does NOT start at 80k in Portugal. The best selling 250CDI starts at 59k, the cheapest 200CGI starts at 49k. The Honda Jazz starts at 14.4K, ( the version mentioned by that other poster is the top of the line 1.2 ), the Focus 1.6Tdci Titanium ( again, the best selling one ) starts at 27k, and the Kuga starts at 36k for FWD, 45 for AWD. If by any chance you want some proof of what i’m saying, you can find it here:

    http://www.guiadoautomovel.pt/precos_novos/marcas.php

    Our car prices are very high though, especially as you start climbing up in engine size. We also get double taxed in our new cars ( we get a VAT tax on top of our ” car ” tax ), and gas prices have gotten ridiculous over the past months. So you’re probably lucky if you live elsewhere and want to buy a car.

    Portugal is of the the country in the world with the higher car prices; car prices are absolutely ridiculous! A meredes class E starts at 80.000 euros!! A mere segment B renault clio starts at 15.000 euros!!! It´s almost impossible to buy cars in Portugal even the second hand cars have abusiv prices!!

    @TheK
    Denmark is a world´s example country. The standard of living is high there´s no poverty the majority of people are well of and the difference between rich and poor are minor!!!

    tuga :
    New car prices in Denmark are insane. The Spark for example starts at about 11K Euros, and an Avensis starts at 38K+ Euros ( and thats for the lower spec 1.6L petrol ).

    So everything else get’s imported from Germany (Avensis starting as 23k here) or Sweden and is found in their numbers?

    A European country with no European model in the top 5. That’s strange. Also interesting 5 A- and 10 B-segment cars in the top 20…

    As i just read, in 2009 there was a recall action from Ford concerning 16 Million (!) cars due to a faulty speed regulator and in january 2012 Ford recalled hald a million cars. I think, the cars of this company are not very reliable !

    Miguel :@Tengil …you worry too much about Ford!!

    Do I ? I’m guided by genuine concern about the welfare of this company. But i wonder, why you respond to me, didn’t you want to ignore me ?
